19th Century Statue of St. Joseph and Padua holding Baby Jesus
I have been told this is St. Anthony of Padua Holding Baby Jesus . This a 19th Century wood hand carving from France. Its of Saint Joseph and Baby Jesus.
First appearing in the gospels of Matthew and Luke, St. Joseph was the earthly father of Jesus Christ and the husband of the Virgin Mary.
The carving of the saints, face, robe in the gray tones is amazing. He also has a cold trim around the top of the robe around the neck line, and around the waist and cup on the sleeve. Baby Jesus is resting on St. Anthony's left hand . The Baby Jesus has his left arm up in the air holding up a couple of fingers. Notice has nicely he is carved and how his robe is cut away from parts of the body. Baby Jesus is holding up the gold ball with the cross on it on his left hand. The gray tones with paint is very typical of this period in France. These statues are very commonly used in the Catholic Churchs. Many of these Saints also had crowns on their heads. Baby Jesus, also considered infant of Prague, also might of had a crown on his head. This meant he was King of Kings, and Lords of Lords. Please look at the pictures for all the amazing details of this carving. The statue itself is 31 3/4 inches tall, 12 1/2 inches wide and 7 1/2 inches in depth. Notice the open toe sandal show. This is what would of been worn on their feet. There is some minor damages , which is very common for something this old. See Baby Jesus left foot, minor scuffing with age . This is just a grand hand carved statue of Saint Anthony, and Baby Jesus.
